St John Scotland was formed in 1947, and since our beginning, we have grown and responded to the changing needs of communities across Scotland. St John Scotland is dedicated towards saving lives and serving communities. Whether providing CPR training, increasing public access to defibrillators, being Community First Responders or transporting patients to hospitals, St John Scotland is there when it matters most.
SJS works in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service and local NHS boards to provide Patient Transport (PT) for people attending oncology and renal clinics. All passengers are referred to us by the Scottish Ambulance Service or NHS clinics. The support provided by SJS’s PT service means patients have access to free, friendly, reliable transport and the support of volunteers, while our model can provide a significant financial saving for the NHS. As a PTD, it will be your role to transport oncology and/or renal patients to and from the patient’s home and the Oncology/Renal Unit at the respective hospital. This service is completely free to patients. Drivers will need access to their own car and/or a St John Scotland vehicle (not all Areas have access to an SJS Vehicle) and all vehicles and drivers require full insurance.
